Photo of Rock Creek Hiking in 1916

Do you recognize this part of Rock Creek Park? If I’m not mistaken, it’s near the entrance to the National Zoo on Rock Creek Parkway.

View of a group of hikers walking alongside Rock Creek to the left and an embankment that leads up to the right upon which can be seen a row of buildings. Location is to the west and downhill from the 2800 block of Adams Mill Road NW.
